Our bacon has been saved!

Wait, where did that phrase come from anyway? Save our bacon? I have some bacon, but I certainly don't want to save it very long. Well, not unless it's frozen.

I went out and did a little photography prayer walk and God decided he was going to slow things down a bit. When I came back inside, and checked they hydrograph thingamabob, it showed that the river will not top that 20 foot mark! Woot woot! Right now it's at 19.22, and let's hope it stays that way :)

Ok, so here's what I saw outside... this image is similar to the one at the FAR end of my blog... you know... wayyyy down there at the end.
Only this one has more water and less fog.

Chase wanted to know where the Jessie went. That's where the kennel usually sits.

WHOOSH! You can almost hear the rushing water in this picture. Our goats aren't leaning on THAT fence today!

Then...

The view back towards the shop and the road. That cedar tree to the far FAR right, in the background is the tree we pulled the cat out of at 11 pm last night.

This is a better view of the island with the cedar tree on it. Silly cat! What were you thinkin?


The river is actually supposed to flow behind that treeline in the distance. I think it got lost!

Whew, I'm tired and need to rest my burning lungs. The really good news? God brought the sunshine out today!

If I had posted to this blog at the time, I would have told you I was sending a life raft, one oar, because what is rafting with out the challenge of a good paddling session... and I would also notify God that he should put a rainbow on your house... =)

I'm glad it all worked out. I did pray that God would spare the house, chickens, dogs and cats... and naturally, YOU... and the family.

I love you much my friend. =) Me
